Teac AI3000 Integrated

edited January 24 in For Sale (FS) Classifieds
Picked this up about a year ago from Zach, with the intent of using it to drive my refurbished SDAs. Never got around to the refurb, and LA2Vegas is the new owner of those speakers.
Amp is a beast, with 300 WPC, and sounds powerful and very neutral.
Needing to thin the herd a bit as my new laptop upgrade requires all new sound recording gear.
Looking for $900 plus shipping. Or will meet So Cal folks anywhere from the Conejo Valley to San Diego.

    I’m telling you, it’s an end game type of integrated for most. Some days I wish I never sold it

    That's seriously what I'd have to do, but I can't lift a 70 pound boulder 60" up!

    I'd have to ask my wife to team lift it with me and you can imagine how that would go!!!!!

    Changing the subject? :smile: Integrated makes sense when space is limited, for me, that would be on my desk in the office.

    The separates are downstairs, plenty of room! :smile:

    Wow...that looks like a beast. What are its dimensions? I am currently getting my Parasound HCA 1500A amp and P/LD 1500 pre amp serviced but I bet this would really make my Polk SDA 2B TLs sing. Would it be a major upgrade over my Parasound amp and pre-amp combo? How is its sound character: neutral, warm, sterile? Thanks.

    I found it quite neutral. I'm a fiend for dead flat sound, and feel this unit nails that. If anything perhaps a bit on the "warm" side, but just barely.

    Amp is SOLD. Thanks Brian for a great transaction. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
    As expected, plenty of "seller's remorse" thoughts running through my head as I packed it up.

    Congrats. That is definitely an end game piece. I was very tempted myself. I hope the new owner shares his impressions once he gets it set up.
